David Fifita has signed a new one-year deal for Wakefield Trinity, which will keep him at Bele Vue until the end of 20

The prop, 27, joined Wakefield back in June from NRL side Cronulla Sharks on a deal until the end of 2016 season with the option to sign for a further year.

He has made 13 appearances for Trinity, including the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup semi-final defeat against Warrington Wolves. The Australian, who has represented Tonga, has scored two tries for the club.

Fifita said: “I am really excited to get an extra year under my belt at Wakefield.

“It is a fantastic club with a great set of fans and I cannot wait to get back into pre-season and get back out there on that field to repay all of their continued support.”

Trinity head coach Chris Chester said: “I am delighted that David has agreed a new contract with us, especially as I know how much this means to the Wakefield supporters.

“He is an important member of the squad who adds a lot of passion into the side with his big personality both on and off the field. I know that he has got a lot more to show us this coming year.”
